Eleanor

Last Easter

My beautiful grandmother died this morning.  She was 79 years old.  Mother to seven children.  Grandmother to 19 grandchildren.  Great-grandmother to five great-grandchildren.  She made us laugh.  She did headstands in the mud.  She made the best sugar-free apple pies. 

She was the very soul of our family. 

Thank you for all of your prayers.  I know she appreciated them.  And I do, too.

You're grandma looked like beautiful sweet woman :)

I would love to have known what she was like as a young woman raising 7 children.

She must've been extraordinary seeing how everyone in your family loved her so.

I send you and your family strength to deal with this and peace to your grandma.

Sorry to hear that. *hugs*

(The family resemblance does not go unnoticed, btw.)

So sorry, Kerri.

Kerri,

I am sorry to hear about your grandmother. I lost my gram 2 years ago this week. They are very special people indeed!

Kerri, I'm so sorry.

She may be gone, but I have no doubt your grandmother's precious soul will remain in the hearts of those she loved.

Many hugs from chilly Wisconsin.

Oh Kerri, I am so sorry.

It's never easy to say goodbye to someone so dear to your heart.

Lots of hugs coming your way from Canada.

My deepest sympathies.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you always Kerri.
Love US.

My Grandmother died a little over 5 years ago. I had totally forgotten how she made a most scrumptious sugar free apple pie. I got that only for the holidays though.

All the other times she'd have a splendid homemade unfrosted angel food cake. I wonder if they call it angel food cake because it seemed like it was made by angel...

Knowing our Grandma's I bet they'd tell us it's because of who they made if for instead! At least mine would, even if she had to lie about it. ;-)

Here's to keeping the memories of these ladies alive and to God getting one more great baker in His kitchen. No wonder they call it heaven with people like that there. ;-)

God Bless.

So terribly sorry for your loss, take special care of yourself

Thinking of you..during this very difficult time.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm just catching up here and wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your loss.

My granny has been gone for 15 years and I still miss her so much.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Kerri. May the memories you have of her warm your heart forever.

I am so sorry for your loss.
